CoopersMommy Posted July 12, 2010 Report Share Posted July 12, 2010 Hi everyone. On May 18, I lost my beautiful little boy, Cooper. He was only five years old. He went to have his teeth cleaned and the vet tech made a mistake with an anesthesia valve that killed him. He was healthy and happy and perfect in every way. The love of my life. And now he is gone. It will be eight weeks tomorrow. On July 2, we brought a new baby into our house. She is a schnoodle puppy named Dori. Our house felt so empty and sad and our older dog Rudy, who is ten, seemed lonely. Dori is wonderful. She has really brought some joy back into our lives. Cooper's unexpected loss was so devastating to us. I had taken such good care of him and worried about him all the time, but I never once imagined that something like this could possibly happen to him. He was my baby. I read something that said our dogs bring us a "private peace". That is what it felt like. With Cooper, no matter how crappy life was, I was at peace knowing he was there. Now, I feel like that peace is gone. I have happy moments and sad ones, but it always feels like something is just "off". That peace is gone. I miss my little man every day. I hope he is ok, wherever he is, and knows I love him. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
